Gay Life Volume 33, Number 25

This issue of Gay Life is one of our best—and that's good news because we're taking the next issue off. That's right: there will be no January 6 print issue of Gay Life. We'll be posting great new content to BaltimoreGayLife.com, and you'll see us in print again on January 20. Check back for in-depth coverage of the upcoming Creating Change conference, and much more.

In the meantime, we explore some very important topics. You can learn about the approximately 4,000 people who sleep in shelters or on the streets of Baltimore each night—and how both LGBT youth and the transgender community in general are disproportionally plagued by homelessness (p. 12). Also, read about the Ugandan minister who fled his country and will stop in Baltimore to speak about the international struggle for LGBT rights (opposite page).

And on the lighter side, you can check out the upcoming LGBT Film Festival (p. 11) and learn how you can win free passes; also, find out our favorite place to eat—we spotlight 14 restaurants and eateries that made our list (p.10). Plus, our Calendar of Events covers four full weeks of fun (p.16), and visit our website for even more local happenings!
